BURAQ AIR - LIBYA - 2006 DOMESTIC TICKET IN ARABIC - Type 1
Benghazi - Tripoli
A very fine and difficult to get item for airline ticket and Buraq Air collectors. Original Buraq Air ticket issued in 2006 in Libya for flight UZ-007. This flight is between Benghazi and Tripoli, according to schedules. The ticket form and writings are in Arabic, excluding few lines. Picture of a Buraq Air jet and schematic route map on the back cover. Very interesting to see a picture of an Arabic sword, added to the banned items list. Also baggage receipts for 4 pieces are affixed to the ticket.
Buraq Air is a privately owned Libyan Arab Airline, founded in November 2000. The company headquarters are located at Mittiga International Airport in Tripoli - Libya. Currently flies to Turkey, Morocco and Syria in addition to the domestic routes in Libya with one B727-200, 2 B737-200, three Let-410Uvpe & one Dash8-300 aircraft, and also operates other cargo aircraft. I have seen the photographs of a Buraq Air B 747 at Istanbul Airport as well.
Buraq is believed to be the name of the winged horse like angel that flew Prophet Mohammed to the heavens from Mecca and Jerusalem, according to the Moslem theology. Buraq is portrayed, sometimes with the head of a woman, in the Turkish and Persian miniatures starting from the 14th century. A now defunct Indenosian airline, Bouraq Airlines was also named after Buraq.
